A free hip replacement for these twins would give them hope for a better tomorrow. Hip pain and problems often get in the way of doing things and may even scar relationships if it gets out of hand. Though there are several risks in undergoing such operation. Know more about it at

It is indeed very heartwarming to hear stories such as this. This give these twins a new opportunity in life. Hopefully, there will be no problems with these hip surgeries considering the recent controversy surrounding massive failures of hip implants particularly those of DePuy's ASR hip systems. For more on this issue, you may refer to DePuy Settlement Information Center.
